Weave Area

1 February, 2007 (09:26) | Ramblings

So i’m slowly making my way home today in traffic, and i see this sign that has a picture of two lanes coming together and splitting again, and the caption saying “Weave Area.” I don’t know if it’s the altered state of consciousness from lack of sleep, but i kept focusing on this phrase. Weave area. Then i started to notice the symetry in the words. each has 3 vowels and only 3 vowels. there are 3 A’s in the phrase and 3 E’s in the phrase, and only those 2 vowels appear. Since a W is basically the shape of two V’s, we can say there are 3 V-like structures in the phrase. and if we can assume that a W *is* just 2 V’s, then only 1 consonant appears in each word. and despite the second word being shorter, and being comprimised of the same number of vowels and less consonants, it contains 3x the syllables than the first word. Weave Area. I’m going to bed.

    To support your thoughts on the W being essentially conjoined Vs, the Spanish language when sounds out the W as “Doble V” which translates to double V. And I think that is the first time I’ve heard of a sign that reads Weave Area.

    Warmest Regards,

    thinking about it again, the words were on two different lines, centered. the A’s form a triangle, with the A in weave having a consonant and an E on either side if it, and the A’s surrounding a consonant and an E at the bottom. if you were to line up the words, there’s a repeating pattern in letters, I’ll use X to represent Consonants…XEAXEAXEA. another triplet.
